Samsung Galaxy Note 9 vs Galaxy S9+ vs Galaxy Note 8: Performance benchmarks compared
To take a photo of each meal and instantly log nutritional information in Samsung Health and on Galaxy Watch for better calorie management.
Samsung Electronics on Thursday launched a new Galaxy Watch that comes with long-lasting battery life, LTE connectivity, wellness capabilities and personalised designs.
The Galaxy S9 is no slouch on the inside, but the Note 9 makes some noticeable improvements.
The 6.4-inch screen Note 9 will start at US$999.99 and max out at US$1,249.99 - becoming, at about US$100 above the iPhone X's upper limit, one of the world's most expensive consumer phones. Available in 42mm and 46mm sizes, it has a 360×360 AMOLED display that's scratch resistant and is water-resistant up to 5ATM.
US carrier Verizon Communications Inc said the new device will be available for pre-order from August 10, with the 128 gigabyte model priced at $999.99 for the and 512GB model at $1,249.99. Samsung's stock slid more than 3 per cent in Seoul after Eugene Investment & Securities labelled the Note 9 a "transitional product" that wasn't a game-changer. The Galaxy Watch will have optional LTE, allowing users to receive calls, texts, and other alerts even when their Galaxy smartphone isn't with them.
It really depends on how much you value Samsung's optimization on whether you think this is a worthwhile purchase - there are many phones from China especially that offer similar specs, and for far less cash. I typically tend to switch to my classic analogue timepiece when going out, however, after trying the Galaxy Watch on I am quite confident that it wouldn't feel out of place in the theater, or during pre- and post-show drinks.
Galaxy Watch will be available in Silver, Midnight Black and Rose Gold colours.
"We're three generations removed now", Samsung's director of USA product marketing, Suzanne De Silva, said of the company's renewed confidence in the battery. Where the models differ is that the LTE/4G Galaxy Watch has more RAM (1.5GB), compared to the Bluetooth models' 768MB.
Samsung billed the Galaxy Watch as a complete fitness tracker as well, with the ability to track 39 activities and with auto-recognition for six popular workouts.
Samsung also previewed a new voice-assisted speaker, the Galaxy Home, using its homegrown digital assistant, Bixby. I didn't get chance to try out Bixby on the Galaxy Watch during our brief hands-on session though, so I will withhold judgement until I can test it out properly.
In terms of OS, the Galaxy Watch retains Tizen, now in its 4.0 incarnation. That's 1TB in a phone (even after the Note 9 has gobbled up 19GB of space just doing its own thing, right out of the box), which is larger than many laptops (as Samsung was keen to point out). Again, I didn't have chance to check the limits of functionality and compatibility with iOS on the hands-on session, so again it will be worth holding off for T3's full Galaxy Watch review. The Note is as much a product as it is a marketing demonstration: a portable showcase for all the very best Samsung can do.
